I don't even know how to process this information. This has to be a joke. It HAS to be. From The Guardian (

I guess that what's implied is that in any social group, there are a number of different sexual tensions, and simply releasing those tensions will enable everyone to be more open and direct with each other.

Of course, as the article points out, the movie "The Ice House" paints a different picture, that such activities would cause mistrust and hurt feelings.

Either way, it's good information the day before my housewarming party. Everyone hand me your keys...

Um, that's not quite why Dr. Elders was deservedly run out of town, but that's not on point to this thread.

The Guardian article isn't a joke, it merely leaves out any and all context to his remarks. There is a much better story on his speech at The Crimson ( but it appears that their server is overloaded. As I recall, the comment in question came as a result of an answer to a student question during the question and answer period of Scalia's speech at Harvard. As I recall, Scalia was speaking on what he views as the problem of moral decisions being made by judges rather than legislatures or the people and the question arose out of that, but I'm not sure as to the exact question.

Let me go back and reread your first post, because it really looked like you were using polls to "prove" that Americans - or rather, Americans who aren't you, I guess* - cared more about the price of gas than their fellow citizens.
